Dryopteris erythrosora ‘Brilliance’

Autumn Fern

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 9.030.210

This improved selection of the Autumn Fern has new fronds of an especially bright coppery pink shade, contrasting with the older dark green ones. Evergreen in mild winter regions, this is one of the best species for mass planting in moist woodland areas. Plants will tolerate some sun if the site is evenly moist. Old fronds may be trimmed in spring, if they look untidy. Mulch around the plants with dead leaves in the fall, to help conserve moisture in summer. Clumps may be divided every 3 to 4 years, in early spring.
